Workshop:
Linda Popky: The Stand Out Consultant—Best Practices to Be Heard Above the Noise

Time: 10:00-2:30PM PT
Location: San Francisco Bay Area

In conjunction with Women in Consulting

In today’s busy business environment, it’s more important than ever for consultants to stand out from the crowd. No matter what the focus of your practice, you still need to find a way to reach prospects and clients, to drive them to purchase your services, and to build relationships that last.

As consultants, we need to know how we can become more valuable to our clients, so that we differentiate themselves from other options available, and command higher prices for our services.

Award-winning marketing expert Linda Popky, author of the book Marketing Above the Noise: Achieve Strategic Advantage with Marketing that Matters, will share strategies and best practices that will help you stand out from the crowd.

In this interactive session, you’ll learn:

  • Why doing more for your clients may be earning you less revenue
  • How to overcome the objections you’re most likely to face
  • Why your first sale is always to yourself
  • How to build a brand that stands out and keeps you top of mind
  • Where you stand in terms of Marketing Above the Noise with a quick assessment
  • How to build thought leadership that helps you break ahead of others in your area

Bring your own actual questions and client issues. We’ll brainstorm selected scenarios in real-time and role play best ways to resolve actual situations.

You’ll leave with a short action plan for next steps you can take to further your marketing goals.

Lunch is included
